Farewell Naho

Farewell Naho

Leica M8

Leica M8

My M9 has been acting strange lately.  I thought it was the problem others have been having with memory cards and firmware but it turns out the motherboard is faulty so they will be replacing it.   Thankfully the great people at Leica Japan loaned me a M8 so I am still in business.  I have always wanted to shoot it so I figured this is a good opportunity.   I'll try to do a write up on the M8 while I have it.

One of my coworkers is moving from Japan to the US at the end of the month so decided to have a Farewell Party for her, or Sayonarakai.   We went to one of my newest favorite places Gompachi.    The atmosphere is excellent here and it is very reasonably priced.    This placed was replicated in the movie 'Kill Bill'...

Uchi is struggling of what do with her 'smart phone' after Naho leaves... (as she doesn't know how to use it without her).
